Haemorrhoids (or piles as they are commonly known) are generally an unspoken curse from which many of us suffer, but are too embarrassed to discuss with our loved ones, let alone our GP. They are enlarged vascular ‘cushions’ just inside or around the bottom (anus and lower rectum).
They’re very common; it’s been estimated that up to 50% of the population may suffer from symptomatic haemorrhoids at some point in their lives*.
After more than 3 years of development with over 2,000 patients successfully treated across Europe and outstanding results, we’re delighted to announce Spire Manchester Hospital is now offering the Rafaelo procedure.
Using the safe and established technology of radio frequency ablation, the Rafaelo procedure can be performed on a walk-in, walk-out basis unless a general anaesthetic or sedation is required.
In most cases you can return to your normal daily activities straight away after treatment, rather than needing weeks to recover. With minimal post-operative pain, your symptoms should improve almost immediately.
